Early 19th C Faux Grain Painted Country Primitive Blanket Chest.
This is most likely a Southern piece, made around 1800. I came form an estate in Georgia. This unusual pine trunk has a nicely faux grained surface with yellow and black stenciling.
The front and top have what looks like an faux oak grained mitered frame with a burl type panel in the center.
Looking closely at the photos of each side and you can see the realistic faux grain detail that mimics oak. Each side is flanked by iron handles. The wrought iron strap hinges appear to be original.
All four sides have a molded baseboard. The top has an applied edge on the front and sides.
The maker of this blanket chest is as much an artist as a woodworker.
As can be seen in the photos there is wear that would be typical for the age. The lock has been removed at some point.
